I get that the USPS is probably looking at consolidating offices for "efficiency" purposes. But I doubt they looked into the effects of the loss of walkable post office locations. The loss of the South Grand location--along the busy Grand South Grand stretch--is especially upsetting. So too is the blow to the Baden Business District, which just revived its neighborhood street festival, Badenfest. While Soulard's station was tucked away in east of 7th Street (actually the Kosciusko Industrial area), it was still walkable to that neighborhood's residents. It's a shame to see such community-based amenities go.
